Bell releases the BlackBerry Torch 9860 and Curve 9360

What a couple weeks it’s been for RIM. The launch of several new BlackBerry devices, putting BlackBerry App World 3.0 into Beta testing, plus announcing a brand new revenue stream for BBM called “BBM Music”. Very busy and we’re hoping it all pays off for them.

The Curve 9360 also has BlackBerry 7, 800 MHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, 2.44-inch display and has an “ultra-thin design” at 11mm. It’s the low-cost entry level Berry and can be yours for these prices: $349.95 no-term, 1-year is $324.95, 2-year is $299.95 and the 3-year is $49.95.
